Wow what a day! Got on our bikes for the first time and it felt great! The weather was pretty bad and I have to admit that when we got to the training ground, the FEAR began to set in again!

A relief to finally get on the bikes! I was a tad nervous to find out if I had remembered what I had learnt from my training down at Wheeldon Off-Road Centre.

Today I had quite an interesting day. It rained extremely hard and the conditions were pretty bad this morning but we did our first bit of off-road training and we got very very wet.

We’ve got here safely and everything went smoothly – well fairly smoothly anyway.

Big travelling day! Thank you Virgin Atlantic – you were fabulous! So good to finally be here. The local people are so kind and the local brew is pretty good too! Maluti lager by the way.

Here we are! So it’s not that hot and not that cold it’s just right … long journey, we’ve got kitted out and briefed and now I’m a little anxious.

Wow! We have finally arrived after a long long journey! Can’t believe we are here and its only a matter of some hours now until we get on our bikes.
